Rick Rack Fish

Fun to make and soooooo easy! Attach them to a wire or stick and use as a plant poke or hang in your window. You can also do a "nautical" theme party and use them as a centerpiece or hang them in an empty fish tank for a conversation piece!


  • Enough for 1 red and 1 yellow fish
    • 1 pkg. Wrights® Orange Medium Rick Rack (#117-401-058)
